What is a development cost charge (DCC)?

Development Cost Charges are levied on new development to pay for the costs of expanding and upgrading the community’s transportation, utility and park infrastructure to meet the needs of growth. Most municipalities use DCCs because they are the best way to fairly distribute growth-related costs across developers.
